    1515Clicking on the link will normally open a web browser (e.g., IE, Chrome). While it is possible to download files individually through a web browser, for multiple large files it is better to use a specialised FTP client. For Windows / OS X we recommend [https://cyberduck.io/?l=en Cyberduck], for Linux we recommend using [http://lftp.yar.ru/desc.html lftp] from the command line. However, a number of other clients are available (e.g., FileZilla) which could be used instead.

    17 If you are on a university network (e.g., JANET) a fast download speed (~ 50 MB/s) should be possible but the actual speed at which you can download data will depend on a number of factors. How you connect to the your network will have a big impact on your download speed - for best performance we recommend using a wired connection, ideally running at 1Gb/s.
